The voice of youth is all important as more than 200 young people from across the Northern Territory gather in Mparntwe/ Alice Springs this week to discuss important issues impacting them and how they can best share their possible solutions with the wider community.
Panelists at the All Youth Conference which is taking place at the Araluen Centre include 2023 Youth Round Table representative, Arrernte woman Armani Francois, local School captain Elaine Ncube and CAAMA Radio’s award winning Yanyuwah/ Garawa film maker Chris Marrkarany Fitzpatrick.
